At the same time turns off the backlight of the most famous buildings and monuments of the world. what time is Earth Hour 2017 In 2017, the international Earth Hour will be held for the 10th time the event will be held on Saturday, March 25 from 20:30 to 21:30 local time.

Rocket engine RS-25 was tested for the first time with a new control system that will be applied in the first flight megarace SLS at the end of next year. The engine worked successfully for 500 seconds. The test was performed with engine not designed for flight. the Fiery trials were the first which used a controller that will be installed in one of four RS-25, designed for the debut flight of the SLS. The test campaign of the RS-25 began in January 2015. Earlier fire tests used technical model of the controller developed by Honeywell and Aerojet Rocketdyne. The main task of the controller includes receiving commands from the onboard computer of the SLS to adjust the thrust RS-25. NASA has chosen the RS-25, because it well meets the performance requirements...

Turkish Parliament is preparing to adopt a bill to create a space Agency to boost the production of missile technology and to expand Ankara's presence in the global rocket-technical industry. the Project was recently discussed by the parliamentary Committee for Industry. In the case of the bill, the space Agency will be the 39th in the world. This step will enable Turkey to reduce its dependence on foreign aerospace professionals in the near future and in the future to opt out of their services. Turkey Also wants to become a country which not only will produce and launch satellites, but also to engage in their exports. Moreover, according to the statement by the Prime Minister submitting the bill, the country needs to take care about creating opportunities...

Spring equinox is a time when day and night are of equal duration. In 2017, the vernal equinox occurs on March 20 at 10:28 UTC (coordinated universal time). Equinox, that is equal to the ratio between dark and bright time of day, it happens twice a year — in spring and autumn. From the astronomical point of view this day comes the spring, which lasts until the summer solstice, which in 2017 falls on June 21. From the date of the vernal equinox seasons on hemispheres. In the Northern hemisphere of the Earth there comes astronomical spring, and in the South — astronomical autumn, which lasts until the summer solstice. Then the Sun continues its movement, passing from the southern hemisphere to the Northern. After six months again will come the equinox, but in...

The Phenomenon of volcanism on other planets can be set reliably. We are talking about the ancient volcanism that formed the surface of planets many millions and even billions of years ago. And what happens in the heavenly bodies of the Solar system now? Are they already dead in geological terms? this Question has a considerable history. For hundreds of years astronomers studied the planets and especially the nearest to us of the heavenly bodies — the moon, hoping to see some changes. Repeatedly, there were reports about various phenomena on the surface of the moon; unfortunately, many of these posts belonged to the Amateurs, and to establish their reliability was not possible. However, a number of observations (about one hundred) was done by experienced...

Mission, which will confirm or deny the habitability of the ocean under Europe's surface, becomes a step closer to the launch pad. on 15 February, the project reusable rapprochement with Europe, moon of Jupiter – Europe Clipper has successfully passed another test guide. This solution allows to move the work on the conceptual design stage, known as "Stage B", starting from February 27. A new stage will continue until September 2018, and will lead to the completion of the conceptual design, fabrication of all necessary systems and devices. the Main point of "Phase A" was the choice of 10 devices, needed to study the mysteries of Europe. Some testing equipment, including solar panels and sensors has already been carried out during the first stage, and this...

After Spending nearly two years in space, the secret spacecraft, the U.S. air force is preparing to return to Earth. while the war office denies reports that X-37B will soon land, NASA says otherwise. Despite the fact that the device is not associated with the American space Agency, the information received from him, we can say that the landing will take place in the near future. the BBC claims that the landing is not planned, will be just carried out another test, the results of which X-37 still in orbit. Why are the flights of the X-37B, remains unknown. All information on him is classified, which attracts even more attention of news agencies and individuals. X-37 originally developed by NASA in 1999 as a reusable spacecraft that can change the orbit and...

NASA Scientists have discovered seven new planets. In the system 7 earth-like planets, of which at least 3 planets have the potential to take liquid water and life. According to the cluster of planets located 40 light years from the Sun. Difference of our system from that of a planet more similar to Earth than, for example, the planets of our system, among which there are rocky and gas celestial body. This is the first case in history when scientists were able to find so many earth-like planets with relatively pleasant climate and the potential discovery of life. Found that planets orbit the star called TRAPPIST-1. According to the researchers, the information about the presence of life could be changed in the next ten years. "People will get more and more...

NASA has called an emergency press conference on the opening of beyond the Solar system. A press conference is scheduled for February 22, 2017 at 21:00 Moscow time. to See you here on the official channel of NASA TV. In a press release, NASA stated that the report will be "discovery beyond our Solar system, the search for extraterrestrial life." Other details NASA still does not.

Three-stage PH Peacekeeper are already on the launch pad M. Canaveral, they will be used to collect and send Minotaur-4 with an experimental observation satellite for space debris this summer. Derived from the exploitation of PH Peacekeeper form the basis Minotaur-4, which is owned by Orbital ATK. Three stages will achieve the necessary power to send the SensorSat satellite into orbit. The launch is tentatively scheduled for July 15. Known as ORS 5, it will be the first start this media with M. Canaveral. Position at M. Canaveral is not accidentally chosen as the launch pad, it is perfect to a five-stage Minotaur-4 (two more stages are added with a PH "Pegasus XL") has reached the desired Equatorial orbit. the payload delivered into orbit, where SensorSat...

The spacecraft began to search for a mysterious, near-earth objects known as Trojan asteroids of Earth. Currently, OSIRIS-REx carries out the flight to the asteroid Bennu, but in the next two weeks, he will look for these small celestial bodies. Trojan asteroids are in the Lagrange points L4 and L5, and is always followed by ahead of or behind the planet during its orbital motion around the Sun. OSIRIS-REx arrived at the fourth Lagrange point located 60 degrees ahead of the orbit of the Earth, approximately 150 million km from our planet. The probe will use the camera MapCam hoping to track down the Trojans in this region. Although scientists have discovered thousands of such objects, accompanying other planets, one earth identified to date – 2010 TK7...

Manufacturer of solar SolAero Technologies invests $10 million to expand production facility for the implementation of the contract signed with the company OneWeb, which plans to create an online constellation of 900 satellites. the Discussion of the future contract began by both sides last June. The determining factor in the choice SolAero was that the company not only manufactures components, but also combines them, allowing you to quickly and economically advantageous to do a whole panel. "this investment will enable us to produce carbon composite and photovoltaic cells on a single object, so a solar panel is going on the spot. We don't know of anyone who makes it today," SolAero. the New facility will bring together under one roof the various stages of...

A bill providing for the return of America to the moon and a permanent presence there, was referred to the house Committee on science. Its main motive is to plan the return to the moon, begin to establish a manned base with a long-term presence on her person. While NASA refused to discuss any changes in legislation. In accordance with the current Directive, the Agency plans to send astronauts to lunar space by the mid-2020's. Mission to move a small asteroid to the moon is scheduled for 2026, the flight to orbit Mars in the mid 2030's. Several bills offered NASA to send astronauts to our nearest celestial neighbor, the latest of which – last spring. They all went nowhere. It is possible that the current will be in the same place as others. However this year...

At the end of the night from 10 to 11 February, the inhabitants of the greater part of Russia, excluding far East – will be able to see private penumbral Eclipse of the moon. Around the conical shadow of the Earth formed a large circle of the penumbra, where the planet closes to the sun's rays only partially. When the Moon gets in this space, is the penumbral lunar Eclipse. The diameter of the shadow of the Earth through 363 thousand km of outer space is almost 2.5 of the diameter of the moon, so the shadow can cover the moon entirely. But on the night of 10 to 11 February, the Moon will enter the penumbra of the planet only partially, so the Eclipse will be private (incomplete). There is a full penumbral Eclipse rare: the previous was in 2006, and is only...
